DELUSIONAL MISIDENTIFICATION SYNDROME: DISSOCIATION BETWEEN RECOGNITION AND IDENTIFICATION PROCESSES
TLDR
There are no treatment guidelines of this delusional disorder, and pharmacotherapy experimental, but the drugs from the group of neuroleptics and lithium seem effective and some hope for the treatment is created by neurotherapy, but it is also experimental.
Delusional Misidentification Syndrome (DMS) - An unidentified entity of DSM
TLDR
Two cases with Capgras Delusions are presented and concern regarding the short comings of current Diagnostic system is expressed.
Capgras’ Delusion: A Systematic Review of 255 Published Cases
TLDR
Specific features of the Capgras’ delusional content and associated signs point to either organic or functional aetiology, which challenges their explanatory models.
An unusual delusion of duplication in a patient affected by Dementia with Lewy bodies
TLDR
The concomitant presence of severe attentional and executive deficits evocative for a frontal syndrome and the marked global decrease of perfusion in the remaining lobes at the SPECT scan also suggest a possible dysfunction in an abnormal connectivity between anterior and posterior areas.
Capgras' Syndrome in First-Episode Psychotic Disorders
TLDR
Capgras' syndrome was prevalent across a broad spectrum of first-episode psychotic disorders, most often in acute psychoses of rapid onset.
Combined Delusional Syndromes in a Patient with Schizophrenia : Erotomania , Delusional Misidentification Syndrome , Folie à Deux and Nihilistic Delusion
TLDR
A case including different delusional misidentification syndromes and other delusional phenomena in one person suffering from schizophrenia, including an erotomania was initially diagnosed and led to more delusional syndrome (“Wahnarbeit”).
The Fregoli Delusion: A Disorder of Person Identification and Tracking
TLDR
A detailed survey of all the Fregoli cases reported in the literature since the seminal Courbon and Fail (1927) is conducted, identifying 38 clear cases of this type and discussing the implications of the findings for current hypotheses concerning the origin of the F Regoli delusion.

TLDR
The neuropsychological theory of P300 is reviewed, ways in which this brain potential can be used as a measure of cognitive efficiency are defined, and methodologic issues that must be considered for successful clinical ERP applications are outlined.

Abstract Unawareness of defects or anosognosia has been closely associated with confabulation in neurological patients. In order to understand better the relationship between anosognosia and
Auditory P300 abnormalities and left posterior superior temporal gyrus volume reduction in schizophrenia.
TLDR
Initial data appear most compatible with a model that postulates a major role for bilateral STG sources in P300 generation: the strongly asymmetric STG volume reduction found in many schizophrenic subjects produces asymmetric P300 amplitudes at lateral electrode sites, where the influence of the abnormal region is most easily detected.
Increased rate of P300 latency prolongation with age in schizophrenia. Electrophysiological evidence for a neurodegenerative process.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided that male patients with chronic schizophrenia experience a neurodegenerative process that becomes evident in adulthood and is reflected by the rate of change of P300 latency with age.
Delusional misidentification: a clinical, neuropsychological and brain imaging case study.
TLDR
The case of a young woman with a disorder involving Capgras syndrome, Frégoli syndrome, intermetamorphosis, and the subjective-doubles syndrome is reported, and findings are discussed with respect to recent models of delusional misidentification syndromes.
Capgras syndrome: agnosia of identification and delusion of reduplication.
TLDR
It is suggested that the basic phenomenon of unawareness may be due to sensory deprivation and a particular process of awareness concerning personal objects is hypothesized which would explain the specific delusion of reduplication that occurs when these objects are misidentified.
